This farm is a rich mixture of natural beauty and enhanced man - made features
Tobaccoville, Forsyth County, North Carolina
In the early 18th century the “Carolina Road”, part of the “Great Wagon Road” was the route for Pennsylvania and Virginia settlers moving south in search of land and a new life. At the time of the Revolutionary war it was the heaviest traveled road in Colonial America. Many of these pioneers settled on the fertile farm land along the Yadkin River Basin in central North Carolina.
On the Great Wagon Road, Jomeokee (“Great Guide”, as named by the Saura Indians) Pilot Mountain served as a landmark for German Moravian settlers traveling to their new home of der Wachua, or Wachovia, present day Winston-Salem. Wachovia quickly became an established urban center and led to further settlement of the Piedmont region.
This history-rich, north-central region of North Carolina still holds the beauty and appeal that it did for our forefathers. Welcome to 5101 Spainhour Mill Road, Tobaccoville, NC.
